Harley Benton has launched a new line of affordable bass amps called the SolidBass series, which includes two combo amps, two head units, and four cabinets. The amps range in power from the 150-watt SolidBass 150C combo to the 600-watt SolidBass 600H head, while the cabinets get up to an 8×10 rated at 900 watts.
“From the rounded and articulate nuances of a jazz bass playing at an intimate club venue to the full-throated roar of a high octane stadium-sized rock gig, the SolidBass Range has players covered,” the company writes.
The entire range of combos and heads carry the same set of features including separate inputs for passive or active basses, a four-band EQ, a built-in chromatic tuner with an LED display, a smart compressor with on/off switch, and a mute. They’re also equipped with a DI with lift and pre/post switches, an effects loop, a headphone output, and a line in with its own level control. All of the connectivity, minus the speaker jack, is front-mounted for easy access. The SolidBass 150C and 300C combo amps both feature tilt-back designs.
The SolidBass cabinet line is built with 15mm poplar plywood with bronco style tolex and a British style grill cloth. Aside from the 810, Harley Benton introduced the 210T, 410T, and 115T. The “T” represents a custom-voiced three-inch tweeter to fill out the frequency range.
The Harley Benton SolidBass series is available now with prices ranging from $121 for the 115T up to $333 for the 810.
Is there an error in the pricing printed?
Gotta look into these. They can’t be as bad as Hartley, can they?
Seems too good to be true! $300+ for and 810 cab? Wonder how they sound?
They want that amount for an 8×10??? I don’t care about the quality. I’m sold.
Could there be a mistake in the pricing even if it were euros its still very inexpensive. I no nothing of the brand it still be a bargain if it were Walmart cabinets.
I live in New York City and cannot fing anything by Harley Benton. I would love to try out their ric bass. Can’t even find them on line.
